Rule Brittania! That’s right guys and girls, Brittania will be ruling the waves once more this November as the world’s top eight players over the past year hop on a boat across the Thames to do battle at the O2 Arena for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, and we’ve got just the thing to get you in the mood.

Andy Murray is the cover star on the latest issue of the world’s first, and in our humble opinion, best tennis ezine, and there’s plenty of great content inside to ramp up your excitement levels ahead of the big showdown.

We kick things off with a touch of artistic world play as talented poet Rael Mason gives us the lowdown on the leading challengers hoping to stake a claim on the prestigious title, 1500 ATP rankings points and a share of the £2,227,500 prize pot.

First to qualify for London, the top four men in the world have their say on each other’s talents, while we also feature top-ranked American Mardy Fish, who is in the running to book a spot amongst the elite eight for the first time in his career.

Click through the pages and test your knowledge of the year-end championships in our brain-busting quiz, and enter our competition for your chance to win one of four pairs of tickets to the big event itself from November 20-27.

Elsewhere, piece together the body parts to find out which attributes of top players past and present make up the ultimate female player, according to tour coach Patrick Mouratoglou, while Mark Petchey instructs you how to strike a high-bouncing ball with the assurance of Robin Soderling.

And there’s more – scroll through our snapshots of the best fist-pumpers in the modern game, get the lowdown on bright young spark Caroline Garcia, go behind the scenes at La Manga Club and get a sneak peak at the upcoming Barricade 7.0 shoe, set for release ahead of the year-end finals.

One last thing: all of this – the news, reviews, competitions and interviews – are no-catches, entirely, 100% free. Just click here, and keep on clicking. Think of it as a pre-christmas gift, just waiting to be unwrapped…
